It’s been an uncommonly wet spring in the high desert of southeast Utah and the rest of the Four Corners area. The plants are making hay while the rains come, so to speak. As they are engineered to do.
Each spring I vow to learn the species as they flower, which gives one time to notice them, since they don’t all blossom at once. Usually I fail to keep my promise.
This year, though, I have been doing quite well. Here are some of my favorites so far.
